I think we are used to the idea of corporations and companies cynically exposing gay people for a quick buck.
I think – absolutely. It’s always been the pink £. [British Pound GBP]. You know, it’s a ongoing thing. I think now what’s happened though there’s a kind of critical mass, and I complete take onboard what you’re saying, I think though we have to accept that there is a sense that this is slightly distasteful, this is a flag that afterall this is related to activism and pushing for equal rights. And now it is being manipulated as a kind of – a kind of indicator that, ‘you are good’, ‘that you are virtuous’, that you are quote on quote, ‘the right side of history’.
And that’s not what it should be about. That’s not what it should be meaning and I think a lot of gay people in particular are starting to feel that this is misrepresenting what they stand for.
I went into a popular Japanese chain – I won’t say what its called and the maps told me that they were proud that they didn’t discriminate against LGBT people. And my feeling about that is, why would you? My default expectations is that you wouldn’t. We don’t live in a society where that sort of thing is acceptable. And it reminds me of when started to campaign where they wore safety pins, to broadcast the idea that they are not racist. Again, I would assume you weren’t.
And I feel a lot more comfortable about these corporations doing this – if for instance they would of done the same before the Equality Act in 2010 – if they have done the same, before Sec. 28 was repelled in 2003. If they have done the same before Age of Consent was equalized in 2001.
We have to accept that they have taken a market decision to make as much money as possible and they calculated that.
